Collier County Reviews

I love the community feel of small town America so Collier County fits that description. The only thing I would change would be the influx of people moving in. I think this will drastically change the feel. It will just become another busy, overcrowded town.

What I like most about Collier county are the recreational activities like canoeing or bike riding. I also am most interested in the various community center where folks can volunteer and get involved in fun activities, but above all the beaches there are beautiful and are close to where I live.
The beaches are always filled with happy tourists. Naples is the perfect get away from up north. The school systems are involved, the environment is very healthy, it is filled with diverse families from all around. Naples is said to be "in a bubble" which keeps up the safety of its residents.
